Why are medical IDs critical?
Perhaps your doctor, nurse or pharmacist advised you to obtain and always wear a medical ID.
Why is it important?
- In an emergency, when you might not be able to speak for yourself, a medical ID bracelet or necklace speaks for you.
- Symptoms of common ailments can easily be misdiagnosed. Prompt diagnosis is critical to effective treatment. A brief
description of vital medical facts engraved on your medical ID ensures appropriate and timely medical care.
- According to a published study, half of all medical errors occur because of mistakes made upon admission or discharge from the hospital.
Wearing a medical ID protects against potentially harmful medical errors.
- More than 95 percent of emergency responders look for a medical ID; more than 75 percent check for a medical
ID immediately upon assessing the patient. If you're wearing a medical ID, it won't be missed.
- Medical IDs can eliminate trips to the hospital, reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and prevent minor emergencies from becoming major ones.
Medical IDs save lives! One day, a medical ID may save you.
Who should wear a medical ID?
If you have ongoing medical conditions, drug or food allergies, or are taking multiple medicines,
you should wear a medical ID alert - we offer medical bracelets for women and medical bracelets for men alike. An engraved medical ID bracelet or necklace presenting
a concise overview of your conditions, allergies and medicines will alert a doctor or medic
before starting treatment. Informing medical personnel about your unique medical conditions
and needs will greatly aid pre-hospital care.
Below is a partial list of ailments or persons who should wear a medical ID:
- Heart disease
(angina, atrial fibrillation, pacemakers)
- Blood thinners/anticoagulants
- Drug allergies
(such as Penicillin)
- Food allergies
(such as peanut)
- Insect allergies
(such as bee stings)
- Alzheimer's/Dementia/Memory impairment
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
- Bariatric surgery patients
- Blood disorders
- Breathing disorders
- Cerebral Palsy
- Clinical trial patients

- Kidney failure
- Mental health patients
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson's Disease
- People taking multiple medications
- Rare diseases
- Special needs children
- Stroke risk

These medical ailments demand a medical ID. In particular, many individuals
suffer from allergies or asthma yet do not wear an allergy bracelet or asthma ID. Or for those
suffering from epilepsy, an epilepsy bracelet is a must. If you're unsure whether
you need to wear a medical ID tag, consult your physician or pharmacist.
Or, if you prefer, contact our office for assistance.
Medical IDs are also recommended for family caregivers, in case
they are ever in an accident, to ensure their loved one can get
the care they need. Click here
